LTTP Urges Capacity Building For Teachers

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, March 03 (LINA) - The Program Coordinator of the Liberia Teacher Training Program (LTTP) has challenged Liberian teachers to build their capacities in basic reading and writing skills.

Madam Patience Suah observed that reading is the foundation that students can build on, to attain any standard in their academic sojourn.

Madam Suah made the statement over the weekend in an interview with the Liberia News Agency, at the end of five-day intensive reading skills training for more than 100 teachers from 16 elementary schools, within the Monrovia Consolidated School System (MCSS).

She observed that the civil conflict had an adverse effect on the Liberian educational system, like other sectors of society, and that the capacity building of teachers will go a long way to revamp the education sector.

Meanwhile, a first grade teacher of the C. William Burmskine Elementary School, Susan P. Nagbe, has called on the Liberian Government to allocate additional funding to the improvement of the Liberian educational system.

Madam Nagbe observed that it would be difficult for the nation to attain its development goals amidst the high illiteracy rate in the country.

She stressed the need for government to provide overseas scholarships for teachers, to upgrade their educational level by acquiring master and doctorate degrees in education.

Madam Nagbe emphasized the need for government to organize training programs continually, to empower and develop the potential of teachers in Liberia.
